You need to add your series on creating source citations in RootsMagic 7. You have no idea how many people, just in Arizona, have benefited from those posts.

I should have thanked you back on the 1st when you featured "Compilatiobn of Published Sources." I'm not a MyHeritage subscriber and had hitherto not known of this wonderful resource. It remindme a little of early Mocavo, but it seems much better. And Free! Wonders will never cease. For me, this was your best (most useful) post of the year.
